The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month

"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

You know what it's just. I've got nothing to lose. It's who I am. There's no way for me to negotiate while in Walter case. It's fascinating that he did find. He did negotiate that Spits, and that I love I love his nieces. His six nieces appear the documentary. It's really fascinating, so they will. They will tell you. There are some things that he doesn't even talk about with family and those nieces. His daughters they traveled with him took care of him. They helped him and they recognizer. There were some topics that you just did not talk about with the Oh Walter. So in the documentary mutuel mutual more. The camera crew is inside his home, filming his books, filming his collection of things, and there's a lot of gay books and movies. He was in the press while ago. When the movie call me by, your name came out because he was so inspired by Timothy Chalet having sex with a peach that he wanted Timothy Shallow May to play him in the movie of his life so here. The crew is filming inside his home and they see all this stuff. The vhs copy of coca peruse trick and the Gay Kamasutra and obviously like. They're saying that they spent so much time that Walmer mccollough got used to it and certainly Kareem tops and Christina Constantini who made this documentary to me. I'm not sure what took place whether he either, they felt uncomfortable bringing up those questions or not, whether you are a or not, but what is your thoughts Sylvia Rivera? What do you make of the film? Trick of Coco Peru of the gay come on. What are your thoughts on? Queer Liberation as as a Shaman as the guy as a person who has worked so hard in your life for spiritual for physical for mental for body liberation. What do you think of these other individuals who took a different path than you did? As wonderful as a film. This is i. feel such a missed opportunity because he's GonNa take those stories through his grave now. They might have asked to end. That's SORTA might even exist. You like to see that that's going to be on the DVD. The. The the fact that it did you as as you well know as we all go to make a ninety minute documentary, you shoe ten twenty thirty forty hours, and then with all that footage. You have to figure out. How do I tell a how do I? Tell the story I want to tell and then the other thing is that you know he might not have talked about, but will also. Also was pointing out, is the editor while the the the director? The editors visually give us incredible clues so for example when they highlight a photo of Oscar Wilde right next to a photo of of Walter, Mercado and we hear Walter mccahill talking about Dorian Gray in Oscar.

"Of people were arrested and beaten just for existing within these spaces, since activities associated with clearness. Were criminalised in the 19 thirties in what is now Miami Dade County, a venue not unlike the spaces. We have the freedom to create an occupied today existed. La Paloma nightclub was a space for burlesque like performances by both women and female impersonators. As well as a space for effeminate male performers. Most of the staff and patrons were clear and or gender nonconforming folks, one of the clubs, visitors described it as a scene for homosexuals and evening gowns and trouser DH lesbians as well. A sex workers on a November night in 1937 a group of nearly 200 men and women associated with the cake stormed the nightclub. Violently attacking the people inside, while Justin there long white hooded robes and burning their fiery cross. Later, local law enforcement conducted their own rate of lap Aloma. Given the time period, it's likely that the same authorities who raided as police had already attacked while their identities were concealed with the cake. Okay, Despite the violent vigilante and police raids lap, Aloma reopened with new programming that the manager described as spicier entertainment than ever. And that's just One example of the dozens, maybe hundreds of violent incidents that targeted the LGBTQ community for decades, leading up to 1969. So what made the stonewall riots of 1969 such an iconic turning point for gay liberation? Well, in the 19 sixties, the West Village in New York City became somewhat of a gathering place for gay people. And home to many underground gay venues. The Stonewall Inn was particularly known for being a place where trans people drag queens and homeless queer youth could gather safely. It was considered a safe space not only by the nature of being four queer people, but also because it gave young homeless queer individuals a place off the streets to be in the days leading up to the riots. Tension between the NYPD in the community was building a few days prior, police raided Stonewall harassing the patrons. Goal was to shut the end down. The LGBTQ community was growing tired of the brutality and impression they were facing for simply existing. In the early hours of June 28th 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn again. Leading to the arrest of 13 patrons. As the patrons were being removed from the venue, a crowd gathered questioning the polices authority resulting in violent conflict. Many note a lesbian is one of the first people to fight back against the police that night, but some believing her to be stormy de la via de la via a bi racial Butch lesbian became known to be something of a guardian to lesbians in the city. Other prominent figures in the uprising where Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera Rivera was a Latina trans activist who was just 17 at the time. Marsha P. Johnson was an iconic figure, and then I see trans community and the Stonewall riots that night in 1969 was followed by six days of conflict and protest. Against the NYPD D. By the following night, the news of the right spread quickly across the city and a group of about 2000 protesters began to gather. What occurred was a direct confrontation between the police and protesters. The cops used fire hoses and threatened gun violence. While the crowd chanted and sang for liberation. Further acts of defiance involved the crowds, holding hands and engaging in other displays of affection, boldly as these could have been considered criminal activities at the time. Overall 21 People were arrested during the riot. Within several weeks. The New York Mata Jean society, one of the earliest LGBT organizations in the United States, let a gay power march throughout the city, drawing a crowd of hundreds. Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera went on to found Starr Street Transvestite Action Revolutionaries, an organization that served eight homeless and runaway trans use, as well as other LGBTQ individuals. They also rallied against racism, sexual violence and transphobia. A year after the Stonewall riots on June 28 1970 The first Pride parade was held The 1st March gave the community a chance to memorialize the uprisings that had occurred on Christopher Street the year before. It's reported that the march started with just a few 100 people in downtown New York but swelled in size as it made its way up town towards Central Park. Displaying gay pride at this time was still a bold act, and it said that at the beginning of the march, many were worried about their safety. So they moved swiftly through the streets. Today, Pride celebrates the strides the community. Has made since that first public display of gay pride in 1970. We march in June to honor those who came before us and took to the streets, demonstrating against centuries of abuse, government hostility and discriminatory laws. Johnson.

From the LGBTQ Vault: Sylvia Rivera & Marsha P. Johnson

"Sixth season of our podcast is focused on LGBT activism in the Post stonewall seventies two of the most prominent trans activists to emerge out of that period were Sylvia Rivera and Marsha p Johnson in one thousand nine hundred seventy the year after the stonewall uprising in New York City's Greenwich Village. The two friends founded street transvestite action revolutionaries or star and set up a barebones refuge in a run down apartment building on the lower east side in Manhattan for street kids much like themselves. They called it star House. In December Nineteen Seventy Liza Cowan and twenty year old reporter for Wbai radio conducted. What we believe is the oldest recorded interview with Sylvia Marsha and other members of star? She is a reel to reel tape recorder and set out to do a story on what was then known as crossdressing. Eventually a single reel containing an edited version of the interview found. Its way into the basement of the lesbian. Her story archives in Brooklyn New York. And that's where making gay histories self-described Archive Rat Brian. Free founded in the spring of two thousand nineteen before we share some of that incredibly rare tape with you. I thought I'd ask Brian about his experience of discovering this long lost interview. And how did you find this tape. Where were you what were you doing so I was looking for audio for the fifth season of making a history for our stonewall season listen and my mission was to find archival audio tapes that were made around nineteen sixty eight to nineteen seventy-one so I went to the LGBT center archives? I went to the New York Public Library and I went to the lesbian. Her story archives in the basement of Lesbian Her story archives. I was going through all of their cassettes for WBAI shows. I didn't find anything thing that reached back that was applicable to what we were looking for but out of the corner of my eye in the basement I saw a box of open. Reel you've you. Which is an older style of audio? Recording then cassettes would be. So what is can you describe. What Open Reel Recording is is you see in the movies or in photographs an actual real of tape. Yes these are the big reels. These are like three inch five inch the seven inch ten inch and I didn't know what was in this box when I saw it but I went upstairs to the volunteer archivist. I Rachel Gordon and I asked her if I could go through it and right there in the middle of the box. I pulled out this recording that was labeled star. I was afraid to open at because some of these tapes. They're so fragile when they're fifty Sixty seventy years old. They are so fragile that you can destroy them and I know how difficult it is to get archival material surrounding star. Yeah so what did you when you saw this. Besides being afraid that you would you could possibly damage the tape I mean it's almost like finding the holy we grow. You know you WANNA listen to it immediately when you find a tape like that and you can't why couldn't you just play it. Well for one there are some tapes that as you play. They will erase when they're fifty years old. So you will listen to it but nobody else will. So if you WANNA have a tape digitize like that what do you do. We took the tape to a studio in Harlem called Old Swan Studios that specializes in this type of digitisation. I took so much care when I took it out of that building I I was so afraid of damaging it it was like I had ten thousand dollars in my backpack and couldn't let anyone near it so I arrived at Swansea in Harlem and Robert. The sound engineer started rewinding the tape and when he did every single manual edit snapped. Oh my so. This is an edited. This was an that was done. That was then edited. And and and how do they edit tape. Well they had to take it physically and slice it and then with adhesive give glue at packed together so each and every time it hit one of these physical edits it would snap which for me was terrifying. But for him was just run of the mill he would just take the two ends reapply adhesive and keep rewinding it once he rebounded. What did he do next? Well he was kind enough to let me sit in the studio and listen to it as he played it for the first time and I knew I was listening to something very special. What made it special special for me? Because they're not just talking about the organization that they created they're also talking about their lives and they're talking about how they see the world around them and how they see gender. It's very personal. They're not altering the same line. What did you take away from hearing that recording? I think it reminded me of how young everyone was. Then I think the March Johnson and Sylvia Rivera that I've grown accustomed to. They were older by at the time. the film that I've seen of them the video that I've seen of them the recordings that I've listened to from them. They had more time under their belt. And this it was it was like they were freshly ride in New York and just letting it all about the quality of tape. You're about to hear in this remarkable and far-ranging conversation is a bit uneven. In addition to a snippet of Jefferson an airplane. You'll also notice hissing in the background. During part of the discussion anyone who has ever lived in an Old New York City apartment will recognize that sound. It's coming coming from faulty valve of esteem heat radiator. The first person to speak is nineteen year old Sylvia Rivera. The second is someone named Victor and the third is Marcia Johnson who was twenty five at the time before my mother passed away three years my mother used to Jesmyn Golf Clubs and my mother. My grandmother kept on one little blouses and girls stocks of about six seven years old. Before if I wouldn't start addressing boys 'cause during that period that's when I discovered my homosexuality was like you know watching television and placed in myself and the role of the female or just pricing myself As another there's another boy in the Mail on demand was praying such a fantastic love role in the television. And and when I left home at eleven was really when I went into transparent system and make hustling speech and the game against experiences. DIFFERENT THAN SYLVIA'S I. I didn't know secretly because My mother would catch me. She would forbid it. And by the time I was five years old I knew enough that Do these things secretly So I used to and no one was around to put on a and wear women's clothes close. I can get my hands on but otherwise I grew up quite masculine. I went to school. I played baseball. I went to college so and the beard and was the revolutionary did time in jail for Pacifist demonstrations and and Just recently I I decided what's You know why not wear the clothes. I prefer to wear what I was. I was the time I was living a masculine role that I didn't really prefer at least I didn't prefer to do it. Permanent preferred the times to be feminine And women's Lib people Feel that the women are forced to take certain roles which are unacceptable to them and they want to break out no. I've often felt the same way about being a man that I've been forced to take certain roles number one something as unimportant as the clothes I have to wear men's restrictions. Men's dress are much more severe than the restrictions on women's dress of men are forced to look a certain way and I didn't want to look that way then then of course there's a man has to be tough. He has to have responsibility to take care of people. You know suppose I wanted to be petted or I wanted to be taken care of. As I was growing up I met a lot of men. They never pale to me to my sexually. I used to try and keep away from because my hometown. You mistakes where you were out of it and they recall you all kinds of names And then when I first came in York seventeen years old that's when I started getting kind of invest breath more like a transvestite. I started out with makeup in nineteen sixty three nine thousand nine hundred sixty four And in one thousand nine hundred sixty five. I was coming out more and I was still wearing make up but I was still going to jail just wearing doing makeup in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine. I started wearing female attire full-time usually I wear dress every day of the week. I I just don't put on much makeup anything until after the dog because address too much attention if we make in the daytime they might think that I was a male. Al But if I were a little makeup they think I'm a female and he's right on I and if I will not make it night they automatically know female female they really can tell the difference about me because I'm on my way to be.

"And if he did it seems like every day. There's a new story about the Trump administration trying to take away my right? Children one day and I worry or being in being transplanted my father and. I don't know what to do about it. Cast. Thanks for calling in and sharing your story. Jamie Jamie's the third I'd love you to respond to Kansas comment, particularly if there are certain aspects of your life going forward where the current state of trans rights, concerns, you most heavily. So what else say for myself is that when we look at transit tagging, ISM right in the US in this continent is existed for hundreds of years. Right. So that when we even look back from the fifteen hunt, hundreds on up from from Conchita, doors and colonizers that came to this continent, and observe transgender non-conforming people as Pacific -ly attempted to wipe us out. They could not wipe us out right? When I look at the first trails that exists in this country that sort of antagonist that popped up in the eighteen hundreds they still cannot wipe us out. And so what I would say to other people listening who are feeling a sense of urgency that most definitely urgency, and your sense of urgency is real. We have to be clear about. Our rights at about the fight, but that this is not a new thing. Right. And so I would say that we need to kind of keep in mind as we're doing this, that this, this is that some of this again, this legislation these things that are being rolled out. I have been are just continuations of conversations, even as I heard the calm, the peace around us talking about new pieces about gender and understanding of gender cutting coming into fruition. I would like to imagine that our generation of people and as not just as one particular generation, as millennials are generation X rallies, people that we have remembering a history of trans people always been fighting for the liberation of everyone. Let me get through one more voice mail. Here's what Mattie in Washington left in our inbox as a recently out transgender individual, I am very fortunate and lucky to live in a community that is very supportive and. And inclusive of me. And folks, like me, However, I do worry about leaving my community, even if it's just for vacation travel, for example, due to the recent setbacks and some of the laws and protections Maddy. Thank you for sharing your story. Congratulations on your coming out, and we appreciate you talking about laws and protections because that's another a good place to add another voice to this conversation. Who's also joining us from K U O W in Seattle dean Spade is an associate professor at the Seattle University School of law is the founder of the Sylvia Rivera project in two thousand and two. We'll talk more about Sylvia Rivera in a minute. And he's the author of normal life administrative violence critical trans politics and the limits of law. Professor spayed welcome to the program. Thank you may I ask, how do you identify yourself in terms of your gender identity identifies? A transportation and what pronouns do you prefer he him? Thank you. Now, dean, we just heard from Matty, and she's speaking to a real fear that many trans people have expressed under the current administration, give us a. A quick rundown of one or two of the biggest things you're seeing from the Trump administration in terms of changes in federal law federal policy, federal posture toward gender. Non conforming people, I think sometimes there's no doubt that the Trump administration is attacking transpeople for Trump. It's definitely like a big political symbol of his conservativism. He's trying to drum up a certain base by having these attacks. There's no doubt that that's significant. But I just want echo Jay was saying earlier, that we don't want to overstate like things were great under Obama because, in fact, a bomb, I put in a few relatively minor changes. Many wish never actually got even got fully implemented. They got caught up in the courts or other things before Trump came in and in general, even when we have laws on the books that say that people should be protected. Most of those laws, don't do much in most people's lives, especially really vulnerable people people who face the worst kinds of contact with state violence with cops with ice it cetera..
